PREFACE. 



The Legislature of the State of Maine for 1889 generously 
provided, by Resolve, for the publishing of Books five and six of 
York Deeds under the supervision of the Maine Historical So- 
ciety. The Maine Historical Society appointed as its Committee 
to supervise these publications Dr. William B. Lapham, Rev. Dr. 
Henry S. Burrage, and William M. Sargent, Esq.; and this Com- 
mittee delegated the labor of editing the books to Mr. Sargent. 
No longer having the painstaking care and loving labor of our 
distinguished fellow-member and collaborator, Mr. Hobart W. 
Richardson, whose conscientious discharge of similar supervision 
over the four books heretofore printed, and whose compendious 
but comprehensive Prefaces and Introductions to the preceding 
books will ever remain a monument to his zeal, industry and 
erudition, this Committee has felt the necessity of increased 
watchfulness and care in the proof-reading and comparison of 
the current work, and confidently believes the diminished list 
of Errata in this, a work of even greater difficulty, because of 
its perplexing minutiae and numberless details, to be the best 
evidence of their zeal and application to the trust committed to 
them. 

This volume will prove, because of the greater variety of 
topics embraced in its script, of quite as engrossing historical 
interest as any of the foregoing volumes. It embraces besides 
the continuation of the chronological order in the registering of 
deeds, by filling the gap from 1690 to 1696; the special record of 
probate business opened by Rishworth, in July, 1680, together 
with transcripts of earlier records, apparently inserted by him 
in vacant pages ; and finally one hundred and twenty-seven 
pages of the celebrated Court Records of the District of Maine. 

This volume embraces two distinct parts : Part I., the earlier, 
was opened by Edward Rishworth, April 6, 1680, just after the 



6 Preface. 

return of President Danforth ' home to Cambridge from the 
organization of the new government and installation of officers 
at York in March, 1680, with a record of a Court of Sessions of 
the Peace, with Deputy-president Bryan Pendleton, as pre- 
siding officer ; he continued his entries till July 7, 1686 [fol. 40] : 
after that date Thomas Scottow as Deputy-register under 
Edward Randolph took charge of the book and, as Clerk of the 
Probate Court, made an entry Oct. 8, 1686 [fol. 43 a ]. John 
Wincoll being chosen Clerk of the Court, Dec. 20, 1689, 1 filled 
in one entry [fol. 43], July 29, 1690, and continued the records 
till Oct. 5, 1694 [fol. 43 b -fol. 115]. Joseph Hammond, senior, 
appointed Clerk and Register in Dec, 1694, continued them to 
the end of Part I., in Jan., 1696, with the exception of Sept., 
1695, to Nov., 1695, when John Newmarch acted as Clerk and 
Register, filling Major Hammond's place during the latter's cap- 
tivity in Canada. 

Part II. pages 1-36 were kept by John Wincoll as clerk of the 
Inferior Court of Common Pleas and of the Court of Quarter 
gessions ; and pages 40-127 up to April 10, 1699 by Joseph 
Hammond as incumbent of the same offices ; and one instrument 
was inserted by him in fol. 128, of an earlier date. 

Or, to summarize and further explain the above statements; at 
the time this book was opened for the probate business, the 
fourth book was being used for registering of deeds; from 1687 
to 1689, the register used the sixth book; from 1690 until 1696, 
the records were continued in this fifth book ; and from 1696 till 
1699, the register returned to the fourth book; thus in the con- 
fusion of the wars and governmental changes scattering the 
records of these years through three distinct record-books. 

The book itself, in a most dilapidated condition, was very unre- 
liably transcribed in 1872, as the following certificate at the end 
of the copy shows : — 

11 The foregoing is a copy of Vol. 5 of York County Record of 
Deeds, Wills &c, transcribed in the year of our Lord one thous- 
and eight hundred and seventy-two. 

By me Samuel Tripp, Register." 

* Part II., folio 1. 



Pkeface. 7 

But the work was very carelessly done, no care being taken 
even to preserve the original pagination. 

At the time Mr. Tripp made his copy the first leaf had become 
detached from the end of the book and Mr. Tripp prefixed the 
following note to the second part of his copy : — 

"The first two pages of Court record are missing, but the date 
appears to be in 1689." 

This leaf containing two pages was fortunately recovered by 
Mr. Sargent, and although parts have been lost from the bottom 
of it, it is cause for much gratulation that the heading affords 
the organization of the first court assembled after the Revolution. 

This volume from its double character of a record book and a 
registry book was long claimed and retained by the Clerk of 
Courts, but was finally transferred to the Registry of Deeds. 1 

The occurrence herein of so considerable a portion of the 
famed Court -Records of Maine merits more than a passing 
notice, and were space sufiicient and time not too pressing, a 
learned disquisition might be penned on the gradual evolution 
of orderly administration of justice from its chaotic confusion, 
during the triangular controversy between the King's Commis- 
sioners, the Gorges claimants and the General Court of Massa- 
chusetts, when amidst the contentious factions inter arma silent 
leges. But only a brief outline will be here sketched in of the 
salient features of the judicial systems in operation during the 
years 1680-1699, covered by our text, leaving to the coming his- 
torian the fuller elaboration, of which the changes disclosed by 
these pages will supply component parts of situations pictur- 
esque and variable as the kaleidoscope. 

After Massachusetts had purchased the District of Maine 
from the Gorges heirs, the question of framing its civil govern- 
ment presented perplexities that were finally resolved by adher- 
ing to the forms of Gorges' royal charter, and the election by the 
Governor and assistants of Thomas Danforth President, and a 
Council of eight members, — Bryan Pendleton, Charles Frost, 
Francis Hooke, John Davis, Joshua Scottow, Samuel Wheel- 
wright, John Wincoll and Edward Rish worth, who were to be 
also the Judges of a Supreme Court, and magistrates throughout 
the province. As President Danforth's home was in Cambridge,

be took, as these pages show, no personal share in the public 
administration of justice, he is mentioned but once in these 
pages, [Part I., fol. 1,] and his place as presiding officer was filled 
by a Deputy-president ; filled successively by Pendleton, Davis and 
Hooke. 1 Rishworth was Secretary as well as a Justice, 2 as was 
Wincoll later, and upon the death of Pendleton Edward Tyng 
was added to the Council, 3 and other vacancies were filled from 
time to time. 4 

Under the presidency of Danforth, and with the judiciary 
thus constituted the government, as well as justice, was satisfac- 
torily administered for six years ; but, in 1686, came the decline 
of the colony charter, the administration of Dudley, and the 
usurpation, so called, of Andros. 

The only mark of the chaotic confusion of the next three years 
apparent in the pages of this book is the entry of a single 
inventory by Thomas Scottow, Clerk and Deputy Register under 
Randolph [Part L, fol. 43 a ], and this book was no furth erased 
by him. 

After the Revolution the Council of Safety confirmed Frost, 
Hooke, Davis, Scottow, Wheelwright, Wincoll and Tyng, the 
former Councilors, and John Wincoll being chosen clerk and re- 
corder, not finding the fourth and sixth books, that jiad been 
carried to Boston, and searching for a record book used this fifth 
book, previously devoted to probate business, for a general 
record of deeds ; and turning the book upside down began at the 
other end a court record. 

Under the restored Presidency of Danforth these magistrates 
continued their dispensation of justice till 1691, when the Pro- 
vincial Charter, or Charter of William and Mary, having passed 
the seal and received the royal sanction, the existing laws were 
continued in force by Massachusetts from June to November 
1692, when she established formal courts of justice, substantially 
the same as they now exist. These were Justices of the Peace 
for the trial of small causes; the Quarter Sessions held by Jus- 
tices of the Peace for the county, corresponding to our Courts

of County Commissioners, the Inferior Court of Common Pleas 
and the Superior Court. 

The Superior Court consisted of William Stoughton, chief jus- 
tice, Thomas Danforth, Wait Winthrop, John Richards and 
Samuel Sewall, associate justices. The court held two sessions 
a year in the principal counties ; but the trials of causes arising 
in Maine were held in Boston, and it was only occassionly that a 
term was holden in Maine. 1 

A Court of Common Pleas called the Inferior Court was organ- 
ized for each County, consisting of four judges ; their names may 
be found by the Indices, and their commissions in folios 27, 40 
and 100 ; two terms,' a year were held in York and two in Wells ; 
trials were held before juries ; no very strict forms nor technical 
rules were employed in the earlier practice, " no special pleadings 
were admitted, but the general issue was always given and special 
matters brought in evidence." 2 

The Court of General Sessions of the Peace could be holden 
by three persons quorum unus should always be a regular magis- 
trate ; but in practice was usually officered by the same persons 
as the Court of Common Pleas, and came finally to embrace the 
functions of the Common Pleas and Sessions. Its jurisdiction 
extended to all cases, civil and criminal, except divorce, and 
crimes the punishment for which extended to life, limb or ban- 
ishment; it had power to summon jurors, appoint clerks and 
other officers; it also had power to lay out highways, issue 
licenses to innholders &c, and probate powers in the settlement 
of estates. It combined the principal jurisdiction and duties of 
the Superior, Inferior and Probate Courts, as subsequently 
established, with rights of appeal to, and excepting certain origi- 
nal powers reserved to, the Court of Assistants. 

Probate Court powers had been assumed by the General 
Court :md continued by it until the Province was made a part 
of Massachusetts. After the annuling of the colonial charter 
the president Dudley and after him Andros from 1686 to 1689 
assumed suj)reme probate jurisdiction, introduced the forms of 

1 Infra. Part II. fol. 52 I am aware that Willis' Courts and Lawyers of Maine states 
that this Court was not held here till 1699; but he must have overlooked the term at Kit - 
tery in 1695 here cited.

the Spiritual Court in England, and attended personally to all 
cases of administration where the estate exceeded fifty pounds 
sterling. He introduced order and system into this branch of 
the law, but greatly increased the fees, and required all estates 
to be settled and the records to be kept in Boston. 

By the charter of 1691, probate jurisdiction was conferred on the 
Governor and Council ; but they, by virtue of their power of 
substitution, appointed Judges of Probate in each county. Its 
officers were, Judges : Joshua Scottow, 1687-1693 ; Francis 
Hooke, 1693-1695; Samuel Wheelwright, 1695-1700 ; Registers, 
Thomas Scottow, 1687-1693 ; John Wincoll, 1693-1695 ; Joseph 
Hammond, 1695-1700. 

The editor acknowledges his obligation to the labors of Wil- 
liamson and Willis, the fruits of which have become common 
'property, upon which he has largely drawn in the preparation of 
this Preface. The indices evidence a part of his own labors in 
the preparation of this volume, in which the contractions and 
signs employed are the same as in the preceding ones, and which 
are carefully explained in the preface to the first book.

Anno Dofi 1695. 

1 That y e Judgmen 1 rendred at y e s d Inferiour Court of 
Pleas for y e now Defend 4 against y e p r sent appellant is erro- 
neous and contrary to Law and ought to be reversed for y* 
an action of Detinue cannot by Law be maintained ag* an 
Administ r of an Administ 1 " for withholding goods Chattells 
&c. 

2 That if y e Appellant was liable to such action as y e 
Defend* comenced against her there is no evidence to make 
her lyable to respond the defend ts demaund for y e proof 
against her is a Judgm* of a Generali Court w ch is still in 
force for any that appears to y e Contrary to y e Court and 
the Defendant must either bring a Scire facias or comence a 
new action upon y e Judgm 1 but cannot bring y' originall ac- 
tion and make y fc Judgment his evidence and ground of 
action 

3 That y r is such incertainty in the writt for the things 
in Demaund as no Judgment can be rendred for or any Ex- 
ecution [65] granted upon such Judgm* the Law requires 
certainty in all actions and the things sued for must be cer- 
tainly set forth & expressed in the writt so y fc y e same may 
be plain and intelligib le to y e Court and Jury and y e writt 
claims only one half part of y e reall and personall Estate of 
one Trustrum Harridon, w ch is as great an incertainty w 4 
it is as may be for There is no certainty of w l y e reall Es- 



Part II, Fol. 66. 

tate sued for is how many number of acres, or wheather 

they are upland or meadow, what houses mills 

Gowens or buildings or in what County Town province or 

Reasons territory they lye in or how butted and bounded 

of Appeall J J J 

all which ought to haue been particularly speci- 
fyed & set forth in y e attachment otherwise y e reall Es- 
tate sued for is as incertal as y e Land in the moon. 

That the personal 1 Estate is as incertainly specified in y e 
writt as y e Reall there being no mention made therein of 
any particular nor of any vallue not so much as y e name of 
beds Chairs pewter brass or any manner of houshold stuff 
w ch ought to haue been set forth in y e writt otherwise right 
can not be administered to either party 

That y e Defend* Doth not shew forth any title to y e Reall 
Estate for he deriues his Right from an Administration 
granted him by y e prerogatiue Court of y e Archbishop of 
Canterbury which can giue him no interest in y e Reall 
Estate. 

That y e Action commenced is both for a reall and Person- 
all Estate w ch cannot be con nexed in one processe all which 
being duly weighed and Co nsidered by y e Honourable "Court 
and Jury the Appellant hopes th ey will see good Reason to 
reuerse y e former Judgm* and allow her Reasonable Costs.

Christian Remichs Reasons of Appeal from the Judgment 
of the Inferi r Court of Pleas holden at York the first Tues- 
day in January: 1697 unto the next Superi r Court to be 
holden for The County of Yorke In a case wherein he was 
Plaintiff against Sam 11 Spinney, Which are as folio weth 

first. My first and genera 11 reson is because I fairly and 
fully proued my case and yet y e Verdict was giuen against 
me. 

2 ly / That it was soe we m ake it thus appear/ our Ac- 
tion was an Action of Trespass for falling of seuerall trees, 
to the number about Sixty, upon the Land of the Plaintiff/ 
Now that such trees were fell, and fell upon y* very land 
doe appear by the Testimony of Jacob Remich Joshua Rem- 
ich Daniel Green & Thomas Spinney Sen r / All these Tes- 
tifie to the cutting of the trees a nd that they were Cut upon 
the Plaintiffs Land, wherein the Case or action is fully 
proued/ the Jury are to goe by law and Euidence, and by 



Paet II, Fol. 115. 

y e law, by the mouth of two or three witnesses euery word 
shall be Established but here are four substantiall knowing 
Euidences to the whole soe that what is more is more then 
is Needfull 

3 dly But we haue alsoe produced the seuerall grants of 
said land to s d Remich and layd out all in' one day and 
bounded and that the s d and that y e s d bounds were run and 
owned by him and y e Defend*, and seuerall years according 
to law renewed between them. 

4 ly We haue a gener 11 order of Legall Town Meeting in 
Kittery Dated June y e 24 th 1687 wherein they being sensa- 
ble of some Inconueniency that might come by the naming 
of the numb r of Acres or breadth of bounds in mens Lands 
did pass this ord r for preuention thereof that those antient 
bounds set between one mans land and an other through 
y e whole Town either by y e Select men or Suruei rs for y e lay- 
ing out of land, shall stand as the true and lawfull bounds 
between euery mans Land And what can more be said in 
y e case if firm foundations be remoued what can y e Right- 
eous doe or when can [115] any man be safe or quiet, 
troubling Courts with many woes is not to Clear but darken 
truth which to auoyd we humbly add that all their Allega- 
tions on y e dispute are too friuelous to abuse the eares of the 
Honoured Court and Jury with any further taking Notice 
of them by way of Answer/ humbly hopeing that y e case 
will soe appear to y r Hon rs as to reuerse the former Judge-

Christian Remich his Reasons of Appeal/ 

ffrom y e Judgement of y e Inferi r Court of Pleas holden at 
York y e first Tuesday in January 1698, unto the next Supe- 
rio r Court to be holden for y e County of York in a case 
where he was Defend fc against Samuel Spinney the Judge- 
ment was for y e Plaintiff the Land sued for ten pounds & 
ten shillings and six pence Damage and Cost of Court which 
Judgment is wrong and eronious & ought to be reversed, 
for reasons following. 

1 st Reason because there was noe cause of Action/ we 
were sued in an Action of y e Cause for claiming Right unto 
& Propriety in a certain pcell of land and timb r belonging to 
the Plaintiff/ which had we soe done it was not suable. 



Pakt II, Fol. 128. 

gdiy The Land and timb r which I claim Eight in is my 
own w ch has fully appeared by record and Evidence and con- 
firmed by the Judgement of two Superio r Courts held for y e 
County of York in my Possession And I humbly conceive 
the Inferio r Court had not power to reverse y e Judgment of 
the Superi r Court for y e ten pounds ten shillings & six pence 
Which Spinney hath recovered a Judgement for, from which 
we appealed, was that same Money which I recevered at y e 
Superiour Court and to be recovered back again at anlnferi r 
Court is contrary to Law & Reason the Premises considered 
we make noe Doubt but the Honoured Court will see cause 
to reverse the former Judgement and find for y e AppelP his 
Just Costs Christian Remich
